OKLAHOMA CITY - Two Oklahoma City girls got a frightening wake up call on Tuesday morning after two men allegedly broke into their home.

Authorities say the two teenage victims hid under a bed, texting friends and family during the break-in.

"I sent her a message, 'Are you okay?" said Estefanie Serna, a friend. "She was like, 'Help, we're getting robbed."

With police rushing to the scene of this home invasion on S.W. 49th St.,  the girls reached out for help.

"I was like, 'Don't move. We're here. We have cops all around us, so don't get up," said Serna.

Estefania says the victims told her the suspects allegedly grabbed all the electronics inside the home and put them in a pile, ready to make off with their loot.

"They did a lot of mess in their house. They stole all the stuff they got for Christmas," said Serna.

"The burglars had no idea there was anybody home," said MSgt. Gary Knight, with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

When officers arrived, the suspects were still inside the home.

"Officers interrupted the burglary while it was still going on," said Knight.

The two men tried to run away, but were quickly caught.

Police arrested 22-year-old Davante Hornsby and 18-year-old Randy Wilks.

With the suspects in custody, the victims rushed out to thank their friend for keeping them calm during the crime.

"They came out and said, 'Thank you,' because they were so scared," said Serna. "I'm, like, thankful because they caught the two guys."

Aside from being shaken up, neither victim was hurt in the break-in.
